I bought a PalmPilot last year….that does exactly the same things as a smart phone. Which I already have.  LOL.

Ugh my T3 Featherweight dryer. I could be bitter because it just mysteriously broke but I never felt that it dried my hair twice as fast.

hmmmm. There are DEFINITELY some things I am not proud of. Like the Wii that just sits in our bedroom… not even plugged in. Or the iPod touch (to my defense, I use that every day… just not for music.)

My Burberry Rainboots and matching umbrella. I love them. I pictured using them for our e-pics, or at our wedding in case of rain. I didn’t use them for either and it DID rain at our wedding, I had just left the boots at the hotel. Grr. Maybe I should sell them on Ebay.

The other thing I got that I wish I had asked more questions about is my Camry Hybrid. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great car, but the trunk is useless because of the hybrid battery (no pass through with the rear seat folded down essentially). I’ve just upgraded to the Highlander Hybrid and I love it. So if you don’t need much trunk space, the Camry is great (and awesome on gas), but it wasn’t really as functional as I wanted it to be 🙁

$250 designer jeans that are now too big and I think I wore them 10 times.  Not a good idea.

$300 “bitch” boots that are gorgeous, but I’ve only worn them twice.  In my defense, they don’t work so well with my current “looking for work” lifestyle or my previous lifestyle which involved a 2 hour one way commute on transit.  Still…not my finest moment.

@Linz1231: Want to buy them?! LOL! Size 9 and they have a matching $150 umbrella. Who in their right mind spends $150 on an umbrella?! Seriously, I must have been on crack that day….

Can I say my first wedding dress? I don’t know what got into me. At the time, I thought OMG, it’s gorgeous! This is THE DRESS!! I didn’t even hesitate to pull out my credit card, and that is very unlike me. I usually think through big purchases very carefully and do a ton of research. I guess I was just high on my first wedding dress shopping trip. I can’t tell you how much better it makes me feel to see posts from so many two-dress or three-dress bees. I mean I don’t want other bees to feel badly about their purchases, because I know how stupid I feel about mine, but it does help to reassure me that I’m not the only one who has made a mistake.

My wedding gown. $2500. What a waste of money. I wish that I had been smarter about trying on every dress under the sun until I found something cheaper!

@bakerella:I’ll give you that $150 for an umbrella is a little steep.

But those boots are GREAT!  I think you should not sell them and that you should wear them every single rainy day and smile each time you look at your feet.
